Weather Summary for Iowa
National Weather Service Des Moines IA
539 PM CDT Fri Apr 28 2017

Hopefully you remembered an umbrella today! It was a cold, dreary, wet
day across Iowa with highs only in the low to mid 40s and as much as
around an inch of rain in parts of western and southwest Iowa. While
much of the rain has moved out of Iowa as of early this evening, the
dreary conditions remain anchored to the region with ample cloud cover
and chilly end of April temperatures.

Across the region the story remains the same as the past few days,
chilly to cold, generally cloudy, and periods of rain and or snow.
Highs will continue to reside predominantly in the 40s, with a few
areas in the upper 30s towards the north on Sunday. The break in
precipitation will be short lived as showers and maybe a rumble of
thunder or two begin spread back across the region from south to north
beginning Saturday morning and lingering on through Sunday. On top of
what has already fallen, another one to two inches or so of
precipitation may be seen, especially across southern parts of the
region. While no one wants to hear it, snow will be a part of the
weekend, mostly on Sunday and in areas north and west of Iowa.

Some light at the end of the tunnel though, as temperatures look to
reach back into the low 60s by mid-week and even more warming to end
the week.
